|Canada's most distinguished architectural critics and scholars offer fresh insights into the country's unique modern and contemporary architecture. Beginning with the nation's centennial and Expo 67 in Montreal, this fifty-year retrospective covers the defining of national institutions and movements, how Canadian architects interpreted major external trends, regional and indigenous architectural tendencies, and the influence of architects in Canada's three largest cities--Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver.
Co-published with Canadian Architect, this comprehensive reference book is extensively illustrated and includes fifteen specially commissioned texts by contributing authors George Baird, Brian Carter, Ian Chodikoff, Odile Henault, George Kapelos, Lisa Landrum, Steven Mannell, Sherry McKay, Marco Polo, Lola Sheppard, David Theodore, Larry Wayne Richards, Adele Weder and Mason White.
Elsa Lam is editor of Canadian Architect magazine and is based in Toronto. She holds a doctorate in architectural history from Columbia University.
